Life, and gigantic dinosaur robots in particular, find a way. The subtle confirmation was hinted at as part of an internal shakeup at PlayStation which will see former Guerrilla studio co-head Angie Smets promoted as Head of Development Strategy at PlayStation Studios.
Founder of the studio more than two decades ago, Smets will be succeeded by Hella Schmidt, previously a managing director at consulting firm Accenture. “We have full confidence in our new leadership as they lead Guerrilla into a bright future, expanding the world of Horizon with Aloy’s upcoming adventure and our exciting online project,” the studio wrote in its announcement.
Unlike the restart of God of War 2018, which Sony Santa Monica decided to turn into a two-game series instead of a trilogy, the Horizon Forbidden West from last year ended on a cliffhanger.

Guerrilla has now shown that a sequel could come sooner rather than later as it continues to invest in the universe of Horizon.

Previously, he had Herman Hulst become the head of PlayStation Studios in 2019, two years after the debut of the first game of Horizon.

Aloy’s next game will be one of them, although who knows when it will finally arrive.
